*DEAR READERS..  I want to extend a huge thank you to all who supported me during my ten week run with the 2019 Waterfront Playhouse Aqua Idol!  This last group of singers was one of our most outstanding ever!  They put together a show week after week that knocked everyone’s socks off.  I also spend a LOT of time begging everyone in town to present wonderful Prize Packages to these worthy singers. I applaud you and I thank you with all my heart for your generosity of spirit!  I want to congratulate our wonderful Top 8 singers…. for 2019….(Drum roll, please!)… #1…VICKY ROWDEN … #2 JOE TRIPP … #3, CHUCK FOX … #4 KARRI DALEY … #5… JIM SPEAKE … #6 LUKE FOX … #7 JOHN BAIRD … #8 VERA GRIGOROVICH….  The Prize Package was valued at approximately $40,000.  I thank every single person who came through with wonderful donations for us again this year…. All those who helped me collect amazing items, gift certificates, services, art pieces, jewelry, etc.  My heart is full of love for each of you.  I also want to commend the other singers who started Idol back on Jan. 22,  but were unfortunately eliminated during the ten weeks…. ROBBY LE BLANC…DORA GHOLSON …. SARAH PERKINS …DEBORAH GRAY … DEREK KAREVICIUS…. SCARLETT TRNOVSKA….  So, another year of Idol is completed….

                                                       THE ARIES PERSONALITY…MARCH 21 THROUGH APRIL 20

It is hard to ignore the Arien….they have so much personality and vitality, making them the sort of people who like to be noticed!  They hate taking back seat in life and will do anything to prevent it!  They are natural leaders, not followers.  The last thing any Arien wants to do is carry out other people’s orders or be at their beck and call.  They loathe being just one of the crowd, and this attitude doesn’t change as they get older.  They have to be in control of situations and do not like it one bit when it is the other way around.  Life is very black & white for Ariens, with no grey area.    They are very idealistic, and always have high expectations that things will turn out well.  They have a burning desire to achieve…have an infectious enthusiasm and an adventurous spirit.  An Arien without a goal is a sad sight, as they are lost without anything to aim for.  They are easy to lose their tempers but it is all over in a flash.  One minute they may be shouting their heads off and the next they have forgotten all about it.  They do have a problem with bluntness…they like to tell it like it is and this sometimes leads to hurt feelings when they go too far and do not realize the impact of their words.  They are outspoken….and if they curb that it would take so much fun out of things!  In love, they dream of fairytale romances…they love the thrill of the chase, often finding it the most exciting part of a relationship….often cooling off when they get what they want.  Their generous spirit and warm personality make them wonderful friends and delightful lovers.  Sex is very important to them and they enjoy a very physical relationship with their partners.  They have the utmost faith and trust in people.  They fall in love easily and invest everything in their lover.  Their hearts are shattered when that partner fails to live up to their expectations.  They have a tendency to put loved ones on a pedestal, thinking they can do no wrong.  All is great while they are on that pedestal but the moment they turn out to be human, the Arien is crushed and let down and in lots of pain.  However, Ariens do not learn from their mistakes and often repeat them over and over again!  The best signs for an Aries are Capricorn, Gemini, and Scorpio.  In careers, the Arien cannot be tied down as they are free spirits.  They must have a job with room to breathe.  They hate having a job which requires  them to account for their every action.  They will become bored and frustrated in these situations.  They prefer being self-employed because most Ariens have a low opinion of their higher ups.  Their competitive nature makes them natural freelancers…they love coming up with new ideas.  Jobs like engineering, mechanics, the armed services, and sports appeal to Ariens.  They are better at dreaming up ideas than in following them.  They cannot live without money…love spending it and are suckers for impulse buys.  They love spending on cars, special bikes, and are attracted to speed and danger.  They are also very generous and spend lots of money on friends and loved ones.  Saving money is not as interesting to an Arien as spending it.  They live for today and not to morrow!!

WE LOVE OUR ARIEN FRIENDS AND FAMILY MEMBERS!!!!

 Please read the lists below and take time to add their names to your datebooks so you can reach out to them on their special days!!!
